...This book covers most of the best algorithms known so far for solving sparse linear systems of equations. It should be useful for engineers and scientists as well as graduate students interested in numerical computations....The book is very well written and can be used by mathematicians, engineers as well as by g students interested in numerical computation. I consider the book a marvelous introduction in the computer solution of large linear systems. T should be congratulated for his excellent work. I enthusiastically recommend the book.
